    procrastinating barack obama answers questions originally meant for other people 

    Barack Obama on his mac Q. How did you get to where you are now in your career?

    A. God, a great wife, a clean suit, perfect timing, and a few excellent speeches.

    A: Takeru Kobayashi

    Q: What’s the last thing you saw on stage that you really enjoyed?

    Q: What’s your favorite sports movie?

    A: 300

    Q: What did you learn from the worst boss you ever had?

    A: When you’re being disrespected at work, that’s the angels telling you there’s something better over yonder.

    Q: What is the guilty pleasure you could go broke buying?

    A: Grillz

    Q: What always surprises you about NYC?

    A: How so many people afford to live there.

    Q: Would you be a better center fielder for the Nats or point guard for the Wizards?

    A: Hitting a baseball is nearly impossible at the professional level. That’s why we should forgive Pete Rose. I’d put him on the $3 bill if I could.

    Q: How do you handle stressful situations and working under pressure?

    A: The first job I ever had I got paid $3.35 an hour to mop puke (and worse) out of a McDonald’s bathroom. All jobs since then have paid more and were far more fun. Any time I feel stress at work I think this is still more fun than that.

    Q: What was the first Grateful Dead song to really flip your wig?

    A: I’ve always been fascinated by Friend of the Devil. It was playing in the car when i was little and my mom turned it off. Is it wicked? Is it super loving? Who knows? Recently I heard Tom Petty cover it in LA and I thought it was fantastic.
